No sound playing [SOLVED]

Hi, I have no sound although everything seems to be working just fine. I got this problem after doing practically nothing. The only thing I did that could somehow mess up with audio is "pacman -Syu". Meanwhile when I plug in my earphones the audio works perfectly. What should I do?
I don't know what else I could post so here is the output of lspci.

Re: No sound playing [SOLVED]

What general audio setup do you use? Post

sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*
aplay -lL
amixer -c0 #OR the correct card index from the aplay -l output
#If using pulse
pacmd list-cards
pacmd list-sinks
pacmd list-sink-inputs

and use [ code ] not [ quote ] tags.

Re: No sound playing [SOLVED]

Please mark as [SOLVED] by editing the title in your first post.

FWIW since I don't believe in magic when it comes to computers, the next time this happens make yourself familiar with the fuser command (which will show wheter the card is occupied by anything that you don't expect) and if you actually have multiple cards and your problem is an unpredictable index switch: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ad … sound_card
